the rockers are full of bondo and I have removed the instrument cluster since I took that pic. except for the engine cradle, front axle, rims, and steering column i'm just cutting it up into chunks that I can pick up and haul to the recycler for a few dollars. i'm going to hang onto the body panels, incase someone needs an upper panel for tree damage repair.

Very cool Tom ! Those kind of shows are fun to do. Our local "carshow' season doesn't really start until this coming weekend. Meanwhile I have had no time to work on any van stuff but have been driving mine back and forth to work and Saturday cleaned it up and did a little TT cruising in the afternoon. Had some of those "used to drive' and gear head convos.

Better Steering

Post by sandyvan on Sat Jun 01, 2013 5:25 pm

The surf was crummy today so I put in new front wheel bearings and adjusted the steering gear box. When I was making left turns and ran over any kind of little bump the passenger wheel seemed to be making a "that ain't good" sound and I could feel a clunk. The new bearings seem to have taken care of that, much smoother ride now. I gave the steering box adjuster a half turn then tightened it back up for the test ride of the bearings. Pretty much all of the steering wheel play is gone:

I don't know how perfect it can get, still not like a new car but greatly improved, it had gotten to where it was a bit annoying to drive around. I guess I could give it another quarter turn the next time I have the front end jacked up.

right after i remove a bunch of tire from its running surface i'll take a couple shots. 4 speed would be more fun but can go to the other duster for that. and then theres the 440 duster......
